4AD indie veterans Belly announce reunion
Feb 9, 2016 10:23am | Fact Magazine

Tanya Donelly’s post-Throwing Muses outfit are getting back together.

Boston indie band Belly are reuniting to play a series of shows and release their first new music in more than 20 years.

A statement on the band’s official website reads: “Belly is very happy to announce that we will be reuniting to play some shows this coming summer in the US and the UK. Dates will be announced as they are confirmed, but right now we can tell you with relative confidence that the UK shows will fall in the middle of July, and US shows will be scattered throughout August and possibly into September.”

They added: “Weve also got a handful of brand new Belly songs in various stages of writing and recording, that well be releasing one by one over the next few months… We are very excited to be playing together again, and hope to see you out there in Summer of 2016!”

Formed by ex-Throwing Muses and Breeders member Tanya Donelly in 1991 (and later featuring L7 bassist Gail Greenwood), Belly released two albums  1993’s Star and 1995’s King on 4AD before their split in 1996. Greenwood will return for the reunion. [via NME]

Thundercat shares funky new untitled song listen
Feb 9, 2016 10:15am | Cosequence Of Sound

Thundercat recently sat down for an interview with Sydney’s FBi Radio, but brought more than just his thoughts on Erykah Badu and longtime collaborator Flying Lotus. The experimental producer also debuted a previously unheard song.

A slick piece of jazz fusion and funk, the untitled number features guest contributions from Mono/Poly, an electronic artist who previously appeared on Thundercat’s instrumental tribute to the victims of November’s Paris terror attacks. A few minutes into the song and Thundercat can be heard referencing Kendrick Lamar — whose To Pimp A Butterfly masterpiece he extensively worked on — coolly singing, “Bitch, don’t kill my vibe.”

Stream the song here (scroll to the 14:20 mark).

Below, revisit “Them Changes”, from Thundercat’s surprise album, The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam.
